RSPB One Big Thing For Nature

Jon Nott, General Secretary of the Woodcraft Folk sharing his thoughts on the RSPBs One Big Thing For Nature Blog.

Sunshine and Badges

Last Wednesday saw the final stages in preparation for our stall at the Bradley Stoke Festival. The all important task of wrapping all the prizes for the lucky dip, after all it's not so much fun if you can see what you're getting. Many hands always make the job go faster and we wrapped everything very quickly, leaving plenty of time for a few more games.

Saturday itself was a beautiful sunny day, perfect festival weather. We had a great spot between the arena and the ice cream van. Once again we saw some beautiful badge designs and the lucky dip had a steady flow of traffic. The only down side was that we were kept so busy we didn't really get chance to take photos.

As well as the badge making and lucky dip we wanted to show people what the group is all about, the camp chair seemed to generate interest and we took along plenty of photos of the things we've done over the last year.

We gave out lots of leaflets about next weeks taster session and have had a steady trickle of visitors to this website all week so we're hoping we'll see some new faces soon.

Finally the day raised £55 for group funds, a big thank you to everyone who came along to help out and all those who made a badge on the day.
